Bask, new rock climb up Mur Pisciadù in the Dolomites


Simon Kehrer and Roman Valentini have made the first ascent of Bask (225m, 7a+ max, 6c obligatory), a new route up the Mur Pisciadù (Sella, Dolomites). The report by Simon Kehrer.

After having enjoyed beautiful rock on the routes Via Tridentini and Ai bimbi di Beslan we were struck by a logical crack located between these two routes and immediately to the right of a huge corner, that leads to the obvious large roof. Together with my friend Roman Valentini, an aspiring mountain guide, we decided to set off one afternoon in August 2011 and check out if the line was still free. We climbed the first two pitches up the crack and were incredulous to discover no traces whatsoever, so we continued and climbed one more pitch. A series of obligations and commitments meant that we completed the route only two years later, during a fun and challenging day out. We decide to dedicate this route to our dear friend and Puez hut warden Oskar Costa, also known as "Bask", who died a few years ago. Although the route is bolted, take small and mid-sizes friends as well as nuts.

Many thanks and Vaude, Edelrid and Scarpa for the equipment.
